dbaron has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-align][css-multicol] 'justify-content' other than 'normal' or 'stretch' should change column count/size rules ==
The sizing specification [describes how `justify-content` applies to multicols](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-align/#distribution-multicol).  However, this application seems less than ideal given its interaction with the [column count and sizing rules in multicol](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-multicol/#pseudo-algorithm).

In particular, when `justify-content` is not `normal` or `stretch`, I think a non-`auto` `column-width` should apply as specified rather than being stretched so that the columns plus the column gaps fill the multicol.  It seems pretty awkward *not* to do this.

I also wonder whether [`column-fill: auto`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-multicol/#cf) that doesn't fill all of the columns should cause some of the columns not to be generated, and leave only the filled columns (with their widths calculated as though they were all to be generated) to be justified.  I have mixed feelings about this one, though.
